Recorded for our cover of the classic Travelogue album, which The Human League originally released in 1979.
Released on Compact Disc on conzoom Records. The Deluxe Edition includes 3 Limited Edition CDs.
Sunday the 19th of July, 2020.
Song production started at 1030 hours for V1. I used a remix of FGTH as inspiration. An edited version of Demo V1 was included on the Radio Plus 3rd Anniversary Radio show, special thanks to host Oren Amram.
Wednesday the 12th of August, 2020. Notes written at 1658 hours.
What a day. I finished V4 of The Touchables.
Spoke to Paula for an hour. Sharyn picked up Jack in the morning.
I recorded two Neon Nights shows with Costa, for this week and next week.
Just did a post abou Heart Like a Wheel, and now I started Marianne.
I used the skeleton of the Touchables as I thought it would be a good starting point.
I had already done the arrangement for this song in V1 of Marianne, but I've scrapped that production and begun it from new for v2.
I did the basic arrangement for the whole song with just drums and bass and started to lay down a guide vocal.
Then I hit a roadblock. the Middle 8 vocals.
I could swear seeing a lyric sheet for the actual vocals sung in the triple harmony section, but the only thing that comes close to an official lyric sheet is the Holiday '80 Japenese Pressing which has an inlay with lyrics, which is totally wrong.
So figured them all out and THEN I remembered they were also included on the vinyl LP insert, so I double checked that and they match up with what I heard. Dammit, I could have saved myself a lot of trouble.
But I guess I needed to do a deconstruction of that vocal section anyway.
Angus just texted, but I will call him tonight when I finish in the studio.
I also heard from Mike and Nicole and will also message them later.

Update at 1912 hours.
Sharyn dropped off Jack at 1800 hours, and then I spoke to Michael T on the phone.
I came back inside and had a second wind and recorded all the vocals for the track. Figured I may as well knock it on the head and get them done.
